She is the Complete Package”

Recognized as one of the 35 Most Influential Women In Sales globally

For me, as a speaker, my metric for success is:

For one person to have a light bulb moment that creates a ripple effect in their world

For one business or association to create a shift in the economy and community to create prosperity for the greater good.

For one sales team to shift their level of conviction, relevance and intention to contribute to the business

I wasn’t planning to sit through the session fully and I ended up spending one and a half hours because Bernadette did captivate me.

‘One Woman Rising’– Step Up, Show Up, Speak Up

A sense of presence is critical for women wanting to rise to a higher level of achievement.

Your personal presence trumps all else and is found at the intersection of courage, conviction, and clarity.

Women in business continue to fight the good fight and the biggest enemy can more often be themselves and not the men they are trying to match or the ceiling they are trying to smash.

This keynote identifies three reflective themes relevant to women in any role wanting to better herself and lose the shackles of self-doubt while Bernadette shares her journey of becoming Australia’s leading female speaker in the male dominated corporate sales space.

In this program you will:

Identify the key messages we send before we open our mouths

Strengthen your mental readiness

Learn to communicate for optimal leadership

Prepare to engage men as a critical pathway to inclusive workplace

Create a Powerful Personal Presence and stop unconscious bias in its tracks

Learn to say no and learn to say yes and know the difference

I received great comments about your One-Woman Rising presentation from many in the office, including the guys.  I think they all found it relevant to both their professional and personal lives.  Several thanked Ansell’s Women’s Leadership Forum for providing such a great opportunity for self-development.  Thank you!

‘Selling YOU’ – Get Seen, Get Noticed, Get Business

Content and very relevant to today. Definitely like to engage further with training.

Bernadette was recruited to speak to 60 of our top salespeople in order to jumpstart results across the organization. RESULT: The workshop was followed by a year of company growth and her teachings have been incorporated into their sales training materials year on year.

Seth Godin once said, ‘ You don’t create a purple cow by being different. You do it by creating something worth talking about’.

The overarching message in this presentation is that ‘prospecting will never, ever get you clients! Your message to market will!’ And that depends on YOU!

More importantly, how do we shift a sales environment from survival in this uncertain economy, to being 100% relevant and totally strategic?

With an increasing amount of businesses unable to meet their targets, and an increasing amount of salespeople sounding like everyone else when asked ‘what do you do, what makes you different and what value do you bring?’, it’s time to think differently about how you show up in the market. Ditch the pitch and the scripts because your message will trump your method every single time. Know how to deliver your message.

In this keynote, breakout session or program, you will:

Move from a state of “HELP, I’M IN SURVIVAL MODE HERE” to being ‘TOP OF MY TREE, STRATEGIC’

Position yourself as a RESPECTED INDUSTRY RESOURCE becoming 100%+ RELEVANT to your market and your buyer

Be 100% On – Answer the question, ‘What Do You Do?’ with so much more conviction

Prospect more efficiently (online or offline), segue within conversations more effortlessly, pitch yourself more effectively and increase your confidence as a result

Bernadette is a highly skilled sales role model and mentor. She has an approach to sales that is real world and we have found her inspiring to work with these past ten months. She isn’t phased by what might seem impossible. Well done Bernadette, all the best for the future.
